Pathway to Hope, a rehabilitation facility located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and founded in 2012 by a group of passionate and experienced addiction experts, is steadfast in its commitment to provide its clients with effective tools to combat a life of addiction and helping them to reach a level of wellness both mentally and physically through extensively monitored detox, partial hospitalization program, residential care, and outpatient treatment programs. These are usually styled to suit each individual resident at the Pathway to Hope treatment facility based on the theme of their history and their choice of substance, focusing their strategy for treatment on the individual’s distinctiveness.
Additionally, Pathway to Hope is aware of the medical intricacies of addiction and so, offers addiction treatment for a wide array of substances ranging from marijuana, alcohol, and opioids to stimulants and inhalants.

The program, similar to the facility’s alumni group, is intended to act as a supportive forum to help clients attain and maintain sobriety during or after the joys of recovery.
